If you are in Sydney, you don’t have to visit a museum or gallery to enjoy art. Sydney is flush with amazing public art and sculptures. Just wander up the alleyway in Angel Place and you’ll meet “Forgotten Songs,” a public art installation which features a canopy of empty birdcages hanging in the sky.
Recordings of bird songs flow from speakers inside the cages. During the day, you may hear the calls of the Eastern Whipbird, Rockwarbler, and many others. During the night, you hear the Australian Owlet-nightjar, Powerful Owl, Southern Boobook, Barn Owl, Tawny Frogmouth and White-throated Nightjar. The names of the avains that once populated the area are engraved on the paved stones beneath the cages.
